E3 Games Industry Expo Cancelled Over Coronavirus Concerns

One source speaking to Ars Technica stated that they had heard news of the E3 cancelation "directly from ESA members" and that a public statement "was supposed to be today [Tuesday, March 10] and slipped".

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the biggest video game conference of the year, is reportedly canceled due to mounting coronavirus concern.

Earlier today, the Entertainment Software Association said it will cancel the video game trade show E3 this year amid growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, aka coronavirus.

"We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters", the group said in a statement.

The association will contact exhibitors and attendees about refunds, it said.

The organising body says it is now exploring the option to hold an online experience by coordinating with all the member game developers and publishers to make announcements that were scheduled for E3 2020. It also maintained that E3 will return in 2021. "We are very disappointed that we can not hold this event for our fans and followers".

"E3 has always been an important moment for Team Xbox", he wrote. The ESA previously stated that E3 would be progressing at "full speed" despite a state of emergency enacted by the city of Los Angeles, California. The cancellation of this event, which promotes many games to be released, has also increased the question marks regarding the new game announcements to be made.

E3 full of drama this year Apart from Coronavirus, E3 has been constantly criticized for their management this year.
